Anything but this book!
Nothing by this author
Yes. Narrator was very good. Book is dreadful
The entire book
I am just now catching up on the classics. What can I say about this that has already been said? Great read.
The brevity - a powerful message in a short time.
I like Donal Sutherland the actor, but he has a low, deep, quiet voice and sometimes it was hard to heard his narration even with the volume turned up loud.
When the sharks started eating the marlin. Heart just sank.
It wasn't for me because it drug on and on and on and on - the underlying story was a good one but I couldn't get to the end - I was literally skipping chapters, fast forwarding, and I wasn't missing a thing. That's when I knew this book wasn't for me.
No; this was an unpleasant experience.
About half the book could be eliminated.

Nothing. This book is a Pulitzer Prize winner and I just can't imagine how. I listen to books while driving. It literally took 45 minutes of driving for the author to describe exiting an apartment, hailing a cab, and riding in the cab. It was putting me to sleep, thus a safety hazard and I had to delete the book.
Edited about 2/3 of the words out of the story.
I can't blame then narrator. I don't know how he stayed awake reading the text.
The narration. Best audible book I have ever listened to in that regard.
In a John Grisham novel, so there are so many.
Yes. This is my first Joan Didion book, she has such a way with words, and sentences and phrasing - I have never read a writer that writes like she does; almost like listening to music. However, what really made this a treasure was Barbara Caruso's narration. Perfect voice and artistry for this book.
There was no one moment; as Joan tended to describe the same event over and over again, but with a different twist, different angle, and attitude and approach each time. So you saw the event in the different ways that she did.
Where Joan is at UCLA medical center with her daughter - her questioning of the doctors, her detailed research and her thoughts about the same - and later when she wonders what John would have thought during that time.
A great story, superbly written and narrated
Can't thing of any
